"WE BELIEVE that if we spend the time to get to know our clients, we will be better able to serve them."
Personal Profile
Glenn has lived in Flagstaff for over 19 years and has strong ties to both the community and local businesses. Coming from an entrepreneurial background, Glenn has developed and honed his skills to help his clients make educated and timely decisions about their investment strategies and how they relate to their long-term financial well-being. His unique real-world business perspective and down to earth communication skills allow Glenn to easily connect and communicate complex financial strategies to his clients.

Before Glenn was in the investing industry, he worked as a paramedic/EMT in Flagstaff Arizona for 5 years. In late 2012, Glenn decided it was time for a change and got into the investing and financial industry. He took with him his desire to help those in his community and translated that into his new career as a financial advisor. Glenn came from a challenging upbringing where there was little financial stability and almost zero education about investing. Having to learn financial and investing principles from scratch has given Glenn a true understanding of how this area of our lives can at times be overwhelming. It is Glenn’s mission to help your investing and financial knowledge grow so that you can have financial freedom and success.

Glenn started his investment advisory career in 2013, working for an all-inclusive financial planning firm focused on individuals and small businesses. There he developed his expertise working with employer sponsored benefit plans such as SIMPLE IRAs, SEP IRAs, 401k plans, profit sharing and defined benefit plans. Glenn spends considerable time with his clients working to understand their financial goals and aspirations. This client-focused approach allows him to guide and make complete financial planning recommendations that are custom tailored for each client.

In his spare time Glenn and his wife, Breanna, serve as associate pastors at Bridge Church in Flagstaff Arizona. Glenn provides financial oversight to Bridge Church as a board member and financial committee member. Glenn and Breanna have three amazing children: Parker (7), Hadleigh (5) and Lennox (2). He also enjoys bodybuilding and has competed in multiple competitions and is a rollercoaster enthusiast who thoroughly enjoys (safe) thrill-seeking adventures! Glenn and Breanna also enjoy real estate ventures and are currently working on their first rental property renovation.
Professional Philosophies and Goals
Glenn aspires to help his clients be efficient with the financial resources they have during their lifetime. He believes that money, like time, is a finite resource that we ought to do our best to both maximize and enjoy. Whether it is hundreds, thousands, or millions, Glenn believes that we should strive to be the best financial stewards as possible. Glenn is committed to the Northern Arizona community for the long-term. Additionally, Glenn helps his clients understand that having the right long-term investing perspective can make all the difference. Our financial lives are a constantly evolving picture and Glenn is committed to the local community's ongoing education (and his own) about investing and finances.

Glenn believes that each year he should become better in all areas of his life. Through ambitious goals and a culture of excellence, Glenn seeks to grow his abilities and team. He believes that by having this culture and mindset, his clients will always be getting the best that Glenn and his team have to offer.

View Disclosure
WT Wealth Management is an SEC registered investment adviser, with in excess of $100 million in assets under management (AUM) with offices in Flagstaff, Scottsdale, Sedona and Tucson, AZ along with Jackson Hole, WY and Las Vegas, NV. WT Wealth Management is a manager of Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs). With SMAs, performance can vary widely from investor to investor as each portfolio is individually constructed and managed. Asset allocation weightings are determined based on a wide array of economic and market conditions the day the funds are invested. In an SMA, each investor may own individual Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), individual equities or mutual funds. As the manager we have the freedom and flexibility to tailor the portfolio to address an individual investor's personal risk tolerance and investment objectives – thus making the account “separate” and distinct from all others we manage. An investment with WT Wealth Management is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Any opinions expressed are the opinions of WT Wealth Management and its associates only. Information offered is neither an offer to buy or sell securities nor should it be interpreted as personal financial advice. Always seek out the advice of a qualified investment professional before deciding to invest. Investing in stocks, bonds, mutual funds and ETFs carries certain specific risks and part or all of an account's value can be lost. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, narrowly focused investments, investments in smaller companies, sector and/or thematic ETFs and investments in single countries typically exhibit higher volatility. International, Emerging Market and Frontier Market ETFs, mutual funds and individual securities may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability that other nations experience. Individual bonds, bond mutual funds and bond ETFs will typically decrease in value as interest rates rise. A portion of a municipal bond fund's income may be subject to federal or state income taxes or the alternative minimum tax. Capital gains (short and long-term), if any, are subject to capital gains tax. Diversification and asset allocation may not protect against market risk or investment losses. At WT Wealth Management, we strongly suggest having a personal financial plan in place before making any investment decisions including understanding personal risk tolerance, having clearly outlined investment objectives and a clearly defined investment time horizon. WT Wealth Management may only transact business in those states in which it is registered, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements.
